Actuated, midget-style fuse holders
The CC and Midget-Style Fuse Holders by Wago use Cage Clamp Spring Pressure and have maintenance-free, vibration-proof connections. They are also feature a DIN-Rail mount clip for easy installation and removal.
Wago Corporation's 811 Series Class CC and Midget-Style (10 mm x 38 mm) Fuse Holders provide machine- and panel-builders with a new approach to branch and supplemental protection. The lever-actuated units replace traditional screw-based terminations with an industry-first application of Cage Clamp Spring Pressure. Beyond maintenance-free, vibration-proof connections, these lift-and-lock terminations reduce wiring times up to 50%.
Accommodating conductors 14-6 AWG, 811 Series is available in 1-3 poles; an optional coupling kit creates multi-pole configurations in the field. The Class CC Fuse Holder supports branch-circuit applications with up to 200 kA SCCR (30 A, 600 V). The Midget-style variant achieves 100 kA SCCR (30 A, 750 V ac/1,000 V dc) for supplemental protection - the 1,000 V dc , 1-pole model is ideal for PV combiner boxes.
The touch-safe 811 Series features a DIN-rail mount clip for easy install or removal. Each holder carries a test point at each conductor entry for general testing. Circuit identification/marking options are provided by Wago's WMB multi-marking strip and exclusive continuous marking strip adapters. 811 Series carries UL, CSA and IEC listings, recognitions, and certifications.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
